A very powerful WMS that is highly configurable.

Complete control over inventory.

Pros
Highly configurable without the need to do much customization to the core software product. Using advanced configuration, you can have the system function very efficiently. That being said, the system will only perform as well as the user that is using it.

Cons
Difficult for a novice user to navigate. If you are very computer proficient, you can pick up on the system fairly quickly. If your a technophobe, you will be dizzy trying to figure out how the system works in consideration all the configuration options.

Response from QSSI


Thank you for your comments and compliments! We "get it" that the number of options in the software can be "dizzying." We've considered reducing some capabilities, then get surprised at how often new customers find that configurability valuable. Ed

It has been difficult to implement / transition from our previous system while trying to stay in business. If you have the ability to shut down your operation for a couple of weeks, then it would be much easier.

Pros
Flexibility / configuration - software can support many different business models / workflows

Cons
Zero documentation. There is no user guide. There is no administrative guide. There is no integration documentation. If there is a question, you need to engage QSSI, wait for a response, and then pay an invoice for support time. There isn't even a help system. The integration documentation we were provided with was years out of date, and not accurate. It is also based on flat file integration when we are using web services. Also, annual maintenance fees are very high (25% of the purchase price every year). Would be a little more tolerable if we didn't also receive an invoice every time we made a phone call to ask a question (almost always because there is no system documentation)

Response from QSSI


Charles,
Your feedback shows that we have not done enough to share what tools and resources are available to your team. And, perhaps in our next conversation I can help resolve some of the perceptions you have regarding costs for support. Go-lives for clients are seldom (if ever) as involved and methodical as what you are experiencing. So, my goal will be to help you appreciate the effort my team is doing to assure your success and I¿m looking forward to touching base with you, soon. Ed

Organization is paramount in our business. Each item in inventory is very expensive IE transmissions and automotive electronics. Without a solid WMS we could not be successful.

Pros
Software is very robust and limitless in its capabilities . As a tier one supplier to the automotive group FCA Chrysler and Delphi respectively we have to be up 100 percent of the time. We have this system deployed in all of our warehouses and our inventory audits are always balanced with physical counts from the assembly plants.

Cons
Its takes a little while to really understand all the different capabilities Powerhouse has. However, once learned you can say with confidence to your customer , Yes we can do that.

Thanks, Tom! Very much appreciate the feedback. Ed
